Local artists are being urged to take part in the Burntwood Open Art Exhibition at Chase Terrace Technology College.

Following the success of last year’s event, Lichfield District Council is holding another exhibition in July to display work by Burntwood artists.

This year’s exhibition is called Childhood – and the council is now asking people to “release their inner child” and create up to three piece of work around the theme of childhood. The work can be in any format, including: painting, sculpture, textiles, photography and interactive artwork.

Celia Houghton, Lichfield District Council’s Arts Development Officer, said:

“We have a wealth of creative talent in Burntwood and this exhibition is a great way to come together as a community to enjoy and celebrate it. The quality of work in last year’s exhibition was of such a high standard, and I am sure this summer’s exhibition will be just as good, if not better.

“The exhibition will feature artwork by people, young and old, with a local connection. So if you live, work or play, or have done in the past, please do start working on your creative submissions.”

The deadline for entering work is July 2. For more information and an application form please contact Celia Houghton, Lichfield District Council’s Arts Development Officer on 01543 308224 or email
